3 Tips for Maintaining Your RPZ Valves Between Inspections

Time to test your RPZ valve? Take some of the pressure off yourself. As you think about ways to make your job easier in 2015, and the time comes to schedule your annual RPZ inspection, consider Yale Mechanical. We take care of everything so you don’t have to—and best of all, it can even be part of a preventive maintenance contract.

Our RPZ testing process at Yale Mechanical is second to none. We can accommodate your schedule to ensure little to no interruption on your everyday business. One of our licensed and certified plumbers will be dispatched with all the pertinent information for each RPZ valve. For example, if the RPZ valve is due for a rebuild, we will have all the necessary parts on hand so there’s no need for a second trip. Once the test and/or rebuild is complete, we promptly file the paperwork with the appropriate governing officials. Our ability to efficiently and comprehensively manage your RPZ valves means you can get back to business.

3 Tips for Maintaining Your RPZ Valves Between Inspections

It’s important to keep your RPZ valves in good shape between inspections. Failing to do so can lead to improper or nonexistent flow of water, and in extreme cases, a cross connection is possible. Here are three tips to get started:

  1. Check for leaks
  2. Maintain a moderate temperature
  3. Keep it clean with a periodic flush of regular running water

RPZ valves must be rebuilt every five years, regardless of test results. Just send an email or give us a call at 952-884-1661 to let us know when your annual inspection is due and we’ll do the rest.
